Elandsberg Dwarf Chameleon – Bradypodion taeniabronchum
A small and slight chameleon seldom exceeding 11cm
Typically a brownish green with a distinctive white stripe or patch along its flanks.
Favouring high altitude regions of montane fynbos
A difficult chameleon to encounter due to its remote montane habits. Along with the vegetation being dense and rather impenetrable. When agitated these chameleons will inflate their neck regions exposing a deep purple/reddish brown colour of the gular grooves. One of the more poorer documented dwarf chameleons due to their montane habits and remoteness.
